Anyway, on Saturday, Scott and I took the bus downtown to Navy Pier to drink some cider! We got there a little before his cousins, so we had some time to wander around Navy Pier. I'm a person that normally avoids Navy Pier at almost all costs (tourist central) but on this frigid winter day, there were very few people around which was awesome. There was a spectacular ice sculpture competition going on out front, and it was fun wandering around looking. The sculpters were just outrageous - so talented.
Once we got so cold we couldn't take being outside anymore, we ventured inside. I still had a few thousand steps to get in that day, so we walked around Navy Pier killing some time. I hadn't realized how many awesome things were at Navy Pier - we commented that it'd be such a fun place to take my cousins children. Lots for little ones to do - an imax theater, a children's museum, and lots of open spaces.
After we'd gotten our steps in, we headed to the Cider Summit to get our cider on. I'm a big cider fan, so I took notes of which ones I'd like to purchase. My favorites were "Sonoma Cider - The Hatchet" and "Citizen Cider - Dirty Mayor". So delicious. Well done, Cider Summit. I'd go again.
